ten points. new nbc polls shows president obama over mitt romney. in wisconsin, president obama polled at 49% with mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire president obama polled at 49%, mitt romney at 47% and detroit press poll and cnn poll showed in colorado president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. tonight president obama has an 81% chance of winning re-election. alex wagner, so mike bloomberg somehow finally made up his mind. everyone is focused on the climate change. in that article he mentions the pez's position on abortion and the health care law. so this isn't just this week. this is something that mayor bloomberg has been thinking about for some time and it is coming as the president finished the bromance tour with chris christie. it is a good week for the president. >> when you read the mayor's reasons, what was he waiting for. there wasn't a single thing that he was in line for? >> it seems to me that he is someone who has a large conception on his role on american national affairs and an early endorsement would not preserve that. the mayor's people say there is off the rec
by a wide margin in the first poll. did you know that obama in the same poll won the third poll by an even larger margin. but you make a good point. as to how it was covered. with obama, it was covered like a disaster of epic proportions never before seen in politics. and it was not. you know. yes, he was not on his game. anybody can say that. this is -- as you said, you're describing romney in the third debate. he either agreed completely or threw out a word or two that looked like he looked things up on his smart phone. romney's sole plan seems to be he'll be there and not obama. no doubt america will seem stronger with a man named willard in charge. somebody did the graphic but everything he said but i'm white. >> yeah. that's pretty much it. and you know, i just want to go up to people that are thinking of voting for romney and going what if obama said i have a plan to fix the economy but i'm not going to tell you any of the details. >> stephanie: right. >> would you think we were crazy for voting for hi
at an emotional level that this is a guy that cares about us. that helps explain why even when president obama's poll numbers after that denver debate, they were looking a little shaky. they held up pretty well in ohio. you look at it and think, that has got to be the auto rescue. >> the latest nbc marist poll is showing that the president is holding a fairly sizeable lead in ohio, about six points at this point. most folks are indicating that's because he has a better margin with white male voters in ohio than he does anywhere else in the country at this time. that's probably related to the cars. i want to bring in ari melber for a moment. we were chatting about this before. this is one time when maybe progress sives are down with a corporation spending money on political ads. >> we have had a lot of talk about speech and corporate personhood and these interesting doctrinal questions. if you want to say corporations shouldn't have the free speech and spending rights that others have, you wouldn't have them able to come out and robustly engage in the political process. they are free under curr
. and mitt romney led in zero of those polls. there were two ties and obama led in 17. that's not what we were seeing two weeks ago where romney pulled ahead in virginia and colorado and florida and had drown ohio down to a one-point lead. if anything, obama has momentum. he was declared the winner of the final two debates. i'm not sure how the hurricane is playing for him, but his numbers ticked up. that's why the states that seem toss uppy seem like they are more firmly in the president's favor. >> let me ask you, and i didn't warn you i was going to ask you this, but you have been the subject of a lot of criticism in this last week in particular as if the polling model that you built at "the new york times" and the way you explain the polling is somehow biassed or wrong or evil. i feel like you are waging a one-man war against e pneumonia rossty in explaining how polling works. how has the week been? >> it's been a trip where you become a subject of conversation yourself and there's this celebrity level attached to it that's new for me e. but there are other websites that do the same t
actually makes sense. checking the facts is easy to do. look at the polls in pennsylvania. there have been two dozen polls in pennsylvania since august first. of those two dozen polls, of those 24 polls, how many does president obama lead in? 24 of the 24. every single one. and look at the rest of mr. romney's campaign schedule. he's taking the one trip to pennsylvania that republicans always take. but other than that, he was in ohio and wisconsin today. he was scheduled to be in new hampshire, iowa and colorado in the final days. and he just spent the last couple days in florida and virginia. that means the map is not expanding. no the if you can't afford to walk away from any battle ground states. he's still flogging it out where he has to win. all of this we're going to win stuff is a fake out, it's a bluff, it's trash talk. and there's nothing wrong with it. it happens every year. you should know it's a dependable part of the end of presidential campaigns. but every once in awhile at the end of a presidential campaign, this expected faint, this attempt at a fake out that everybody know
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
race. a late week "new york times" poll showed the gender gap re-emerge knowledge in president obama's favor. 52% of women and 44% of men support obama. while the g.o.p.'s mitt romney has 44% of women and1% of men in his corner. women voters in battleground states are the coveted demographic according to two campaign experts. >> i think if you look at the president has done with the economy, it is very far reaching, just across the country women have access to capital to start small business, let's not forget his very, very first bill that he signed in to law was lily ledbetter fair pay act. it's a tremendous accomplishment. i think that shows his devotion and his commitment to women. >> first thing you have to ask is, what are women concerned about today, it's jobs, job security, opportunities for themselves and for their loved ones and in particular for their kidss there a brighter future. this is mitt romney's message to women to all americans. is that he is going to put in to place economic policies that will create growth which will create the jobs, be the ergy to small business
voted already. the polls are showing that obama is leading the early boat much like he did in 2008. that is an aberration from our part -- previous count. from previous elections before the 2008, typically, republicans won the early voting. we have had such a high volume now and the obama campaign is encouraging their supporters to vote early. we have seen a change in behavior when campaigns can take advantage of early voting to encourage their supporters and mobilize them over a longer period of time. that is was going on on the democrat side. if you look at the numbers, there are more republicans voting early ban in 2008. the romney campaign is not conceding the early vote as the mccain campaign did in 2008. we are seeing greater interest among republicans and we see level increases of democrats and republicans compared to 2008 in early voting. up to this point, when we look at the statistics, most of the people who have voted early so far were people who are very strong partisans and have registered with their local party. in ohio, we have data where we know that people have vot
with the picture voters, and they're still backing president obama. if you look at the polls, on average, the president is winning. he has maintained a small but steady lead. i think this year you will see a number similar to what we had in 2004 and not so much in 2008. that was a different year. a lot of people were so upset with george bush. the president will pull out and win next tuesday. i think the numbers will be closer to what they were in 2004. host: what is your handicap for the governor's race and the two contested congressional races in the state? guest: in the governor's race, the democratic canada has maintained a small but said to lead in the polls. she has been out there campaigning and really doing a good job getting the message out. the republican, a very well- known figure in the state. this is the fourth time he is run for major office. he has not been successful in the past, despite the fact that he had much greater name recognition. he just has not been able to catch her in the polls. the polls go back and forth on each of those. it is a rematch of the congressional
. barack obama, if you look at the polling data, he has built a pretty significant lead among women voters. these are issues women care a lot about. barack obama is directly addressing them, directly saying, if you want your rights as a woman to plan your own life, your rights as a woman, to table to assert yourself, you better vote for me, because mitt romney will rein in those rights. that issue resonates very strongly around iowa. women voters can make a difference in this election. if you look at polling, the voters isong male pretty even. among women voters, barack obama has a pretty strong lead. this election in iowa and in many other states, i think, is going to be a turn out the game. can getan get thei -- who their voters to the polls on election day. barack obama, to say, i have a lead with women voters, so let's make sure we get them out on election day and let's give them a reason to show up. this is what he thinks is the reason women will show up and vote for employer. host: a story in the quad city times -- iowa is the focus of our conversation right now with my glover, a sen
for team obama. he is trailing in the polls and is being forced to spend resources in states that he won easily in 2008. as a result, the lying will no doubt continue into tuesday. what makes matters worse this just as temperatures begin to reach the freezing point in new york, new jersey, long island and connecticut over the weekend and famed families without food and power, electricity and heat our compassionate leader will be campaigning alongside who else, bruce string seen, former are drug dealer jay-zed former rapper who once shot his brother and uses the. in word. the rhetoric flowing from supporters even more disgraceful. ohio governor ted strickland attacked governor romney for sending his campaign bus to deliver disaster relief supplies this week. watch. >> and then there is mitt romney who tries to fake compassion by asking people to bring food to a rally and when they don't do it they take $5,000 and go out to wal-mart and by food to pass out to the people coming to the rally so that he can get his picture taken loading boxes on a truck. >> sean: excuse me, governor but he ha
: in the average of polls and the state of new hampshire, president obama has a slight edge, 48.8 to 46.8. you can see the specific polls that have been taken giving obama an edge in some and romney a edge in others. neill in ohio, independent caller. caller: i will not say my last name, but i will say that i already voted, i am truly independent. i must say, i found it disgusting that mid romney would stay in ohio to collect canned goods if he truly believes we should be reliant on private enterprise if there is a disaster. why doesn't he does take millions of dollars out of his own pocket and buy canned goods and send them in and continue on his way? instead, he sends coleman to ohio to talk about what he says on abortion, which is untrue. at the same point in time, he is changing his game and changing every view. we know he bashed fema. the president is doing his job. he is not doing anything but his job. host: the front page of the "boston globe" shows the impact of the storm, millions reeling. the "hartford courant" has this headline. go ahead, neil levesque. guest: it affected new hampshire
problems with polling places. we talked about that earlier. i think it is frozen. obama's going to win. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." successful democracy depended on an informed electorate. our country's future depends on you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. take the time to learn about the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. >> bill: 33 minutes after the hour. tuesday, october 30. the day after hurricane sandy or maybe the first day of cleanup after hurricane sandy. we all survived and i hope all of you did too. 1-866-55-press. our toll free number. join the conversation here on the "full court press" at any time. we're coming to you live from our nation's capital. a wet and soggy nation's capital. and brought to you today by the international brotherhood of teamsters. yes, we all live better thanks to the great work of the men and women of the teamsters union under president jim hoffa building a better america. you can check out their goo

[♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: after brutal polling day, romney team reassures they are going to win. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: not included on their list of romney advantages is being ahead in the polls. >> yeah. >> stephanie: romney's pollster said obama has are political environment problem, he has an intensity problem, image problem, and a ballot problem, and it will all add up to a chal edging tuesday next week. >> what is he talking about exactly. >> obama has an image problem? this from the romney camp. >> stephanie: right. new surveys in which obama held a solid
that the obama campaign was relying on to get the voters out to the polls. you also argue that mitt romney is the one who has ground to make up in a crucial swing states, like ohio and virginia. it will make it difficult for him. right now it is hard to tell whose campaign is going to be most affected. host: early voting, are you looking at how the race to get those votes in the bank before election day rolls around might be impacted? caller: we are. most of the states do not have early voting. pennsylvania, for example, does not have early voting. virginia does not allow it unless you have a special exception that allows you to vote absentee before the election. north carolina, which is an early casualty of hurricane sandy, has early voting. the question of just, basically, which ones are going to be affected most, it is hard to say. maryland suspended early voting today. and the other hand, that is a safely blue state, so that will probably not impact the outcome. host: jody rights in -- host: are the campaign's looking at what kind of impact of this could have in terms of big repercussi
time, polls showed president obama carrying that state. well, that's changed now. now the state is considered to be a toss-up. so why the big swap? we continue now with our political panel. david, i'll start with you because i know you had a point on libya when we had to wrap up. so toss-up category, obviously both candidate also spend a lot of time in ohio. why is it so important? >> because that's the most direct path for mitt romney to win. and for obama to belie mitt romney a win, if he can take that state, he's in better shape. romney can win without winning ho o but not a whole lot of options. wisconsin becomes more key. here is the bottom line, i just finished a 9500-mile fiscal responsibility bus tour, including to ohio, virginia and all the swing states. election is going to be decide on who can do the best job on the economy, jobs, and putting our finances in order. that's what matters and we better start getting with it. >> gretchen: so sasha, one of the reasons why people say the president continues to do well in ohio is because the economy is doing better in ohio, b
rasmussen tracking poll shows governor romney and president obama in a dead heat tied right at 48-48. there you have it. we're now just what, four days before the election and still no one has a really clear idea who is going to win. i've got an opinion, but nobody has a clear opinion in the mass of the public. fox news though has pointed out three numbers that could favor mitt romney. first, favorability, despite millions of dollars worth of negative ads and romney is polling around 50% in terms of likability. early voting, this is a good indicator of voter enthusiasm and romney has gotten half of early votes accord to go pew research. half of them and independents, latest poll shows romney 7% lead among independent voters. what do you say, monica. >> that independent number is significant and may actually climb. when you look at independent voting going on now, early voting and polling among independents, in the swing states. romney is leading obama by 7 in ohio, and a whopping 21 among independents in virginia and 5 among independents in florida. now, some of those numbers may
in iowa? guest: that's a really big deal in iowa. barack obama, if you look at the polling data, he has built a pretty significant lead among women voters. these are issues women care a lot about. barack obama is directly addressing them, directly saying, if you want your rights as a woman to plan your own life, your rights as a woman, to table to assert yourself, you better vote for me, because mitt romney will rein in those rights. that issue resonates very strongly around iowa. women voters can make a difference in this election. if you look at polling, the polling among male voters is pretty even. among women voters, barack obama has a pretty strong lead. this election in iowa and in many other states, i think, is going to be a turn out game -- who can get their voters to the polls on election day. barack obama, to say, i have a lead with women voters, so let's make sure we get them out on election day and let's give them a reason to show up. this is what he thinks is the reason women will show up and vote for employer. host: a story in the quad city times -- iowa is the focus of ou
and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive out to the polls to vote for obama. host: molly ball is a staff writer covering national politics at "the atlantic," they're talk to us about the ground game for both candidates. you can read her work at theatlantic.com/politics. pick up the phone and give us a call. 202-585-3881 for republicans. 202-585-3880 for democrats. independents, 202-585-3882. you can also reach out to us via social media. twitter, facebook, and email. so, tell us, where is the ground gaming best and for whom? guest: well, what i did, in reporting this story, i went out and visited field offices in a bunch of different swing states. what i tried to do was pick sort of a random, maybe sort of a swing county, but to go to the same place for both campaigns, and to drop in unannounced and to see what i could see. so, instead of getting some kind of tour, where you tend to get sort of a dog and pony show, just to show up and see what was there. and what you see is not only is there a quantitative difference, because obama has over 800 of these field offices, con
voters president obama could capture? >> i do not want to talk about internal polling, but let me say this, based on what i am seeing, i am very confident the president will have a good night here in new -- here on tuesday. we are working hard to make sure we have every obama supporter out there and out there to vote so we do have a victory. i think it will be closer, closer to the 2004 election when senator kerrey won. i do think president obama will pull it off, because he has such an excellent ground game, and because of these big city issu that are born to the people of new hampshire. we talk about real depth is a reduction, the spefics of his plan, unlike mitt romney to has yet to answer how he will pay for his plan. the people understand you want someone willing to talk about specifics, someone who has a record of cutting taxes for working-class and middle-class people. someone who has a record for cutting taxes for small businesses. the president has signed 18 tax cuts into law for small business people. i think the people of n hampshire, when they look at the president's recor
they realize how crucial that vote was. >> at the polls show that president obama one hispanic vote in colorado, two-thirds of the hispanic vote. it is a big part of the campaign for this election one week away. what about the impact of gary johnson on the ballot in colorado? >> he was our governor to the south and he is someone who is enthusiastic about some of his issues. and where he dovetails with colorado is the issue on the ballot to legalize marijuana. he was for the decriminalization and the legalization of marijuana. i think you'll have some fringe -- on the french voters not only libertarians but unaffiliated voters. he does not have a message to -- money to get his message out. he is a semi-known quantity although shelf life is starting to expire. out of boulder county which is the key base for the democrats, you have a great party candidate. that will appeal a little bit but gary johnson will, in a distant third in colorado. >> here is our first caller: . caller: i want to know why the senate is not being held responsible. he can only do so much. notnt to know why they're be held ac

too long. president obama will be in bristow later on this afternoon with former president clinton and mitt romney we expect to see in virginia at least twice before voters go to the polls on tuesday for the official election day. and a big part of mitt romney's argument has been a big part of his final pitch to voters here in virginia has been to the military. the two biggest cities here in virginia are virginia beach and norfolk and mitt romney has been basically saying that if he is elected president, he will put an end to the sequester. he won't let those automatic defense cuts go through at the beginning of next year. and he has been getting that message has been received very well out on the trail. now, there is also a big-time senate race here in virginia between two big names. former republic governor george allen and former democratic governor tim cane. the two have raised a combined $30 million. and then outside groups have pumped in another $40 million. allen has been getting some help on the trail by mitt romney and a few days ago vice president biden was here telling v
